Paid English-Teaching in Peru
The Peru economy is growing quickly and there is a very strong demand for the English language. In Cusco, which is the international center for tourism for all of South America , the ability to speak English is a necessity - more than 70% of the city's population is employed in the tourism sector.
There are more than 10 official language schools in Cusco itself, and countless public and private schools, as well as NGOs which offer English classes. There are also excellent teaching opportunities in other cities such as Arequipa and Trujillo . There are also very interesting teaching opportunities in remote mountain communities around Cusco and, from time-to-time, in the Amazon Rainforest. The capital city of Lima has hundreds of English institutes.
Generally speaking, our TEFL graduates seldom (if ever) encounter any problems when finding employment. Though we do not guarantee a job offer, with a well-written resume/CV, and a little effort on the teacher's part, 99% of TEFL participants get a job within 0 to 30 days of the commencement of the course. Though employment is not guaranteed, excellent opportunities exist for talented graduates all over the world.
